I'm working on my daughters Simplicity landlord, and it sounds/looks

like the engine has a few issues, Rings, possibly connecting rod, and so

on.

 

What would be the best source for parts? (at a fair price)

 

Thanks

Which engine does it have? The 243xxx series or the 23D? The 243xxx series parts are available from site sponsors, NAPA, and online through any number of places. The 23D are harder to find. If you suspect the rod take it apart before damage is done. If its the valves or rings run it with Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas. Good Luck, Rick

It's a 243431 0123-01.

Just looking for the best allround "one stop shopping"

Shipping across the border is a bit of a pain, and expense, so

I'd like to do it all in one shot.

There are a couple of Canadian dealers online that I came across when trying to help the guy that had the 1886 Bolens. Do a Google search. We do have the manual for downloading. They are a real good engine, I've got several of them and several 23Ds. One thing to watch for is the points plunger will leak oil with age. Good Luck. Rick

If you have the model information of which engine was in your Landlord, there's a man I deal with who has parts for these old Briggs at very reasonable prices.  He saved me from a headache twice already.

 

His name is Will Woodard.  His number is Five4O 2Seven3 Seven54One.  I have his email, too, if that suits you better, but you'll have to PM me for that since I don't like posting that public!

 

If you go after Will, tell him Ben Wagner in Mt. Solon sent you, and tell him Ben said to treat you nice.  He has plenty of knowledge and will share anything with you.
